Military Money News – Troop Pay Could be Reduced to 1% in 2014

According to a recent Military.com article, “a proposed deal on a defense bill in Congress would decrease troops’ pay raise in 2014 to 1 percent from 1.7 percent this year.” Think it’s not much of a difference? Look at it this way – that would mean the average enlisted member would get $26, instead of $47.

The house is expected to vote this week, and, if it passes, will go to the Senate next week. The other alternative to the pay decrease would be to thin the ranks even more than already planned, so this seems like a better route.

However, not without affecting everyone across the board, from Tricare to retirees, both positive and negative. “While the bill would set pay raises at 1 percent, it would also reject proposed fee increases for the Tricare health care system and renew combat pay and other benefits.” Retirees are also affected.

Holidays are both a stressful yet joyous time of year for most, but can be especially difficult when you have a loved deployed. Holidays just aren’t the same while you’re apart, especially if you just PCS’d and don’t have any family nearby! That’s why Walmart has parented with Operation Homefront and Fisher House to help support military families nationwide. Walmart’s “Holiday Salute to Military Families” initiative aims to honor and support our service members and veterans who keep our country safe, as well as the military families who act as our heroes at home, especially during the holidays!

Walmart is giving $2 million in support to Operation Homefront and Fisher House to help spread holiday joy to our nation’s heroes and their families. Walmart will fund Operation Homefront’s plan to provide toys and meals to military families nationwide who are in need of support this holiday season. The gift also will support Operation Homefront’s “Home for the Holidays” program, reuniting heroes with their families. And, Walmart’s gift will pay half the cost to make Fisher Houses completely free for all families in 2014.

And, we want to know who your hero is, this holiday season and every day! Leave a comment on here or Facebook and use #GivingTuesday and tag your loved one, sharing with everyone how grateful you are for them! Plus, if you are looking for ways to help military families, you can join in the Salute! Help Sponsor A Family in a Fisher House today –  click on Join in our Holiday Salute to Military Families !
